Teal Room

My good friend Shey is moving into a new house soon and wanted some input regarding a bedroom that's painted a dark aqua color.  She wants see if they can live with it awhile before just jumping in and re-painting it.  Even though the color is bold, I suggested that it's totally workable if you add in other shades of blue or green, like sea glass.  In other words, don't fight it; just go with it.

I took the color inspiration from this gorgeous photo by Christian Chaise and the Urban Outfitters bedding makes it really easy (you could also use the photo as inspiration for a bathroom using this shower curtain).  Pulling in some of the colors from the photo such as red, yellow, and sand would give the room some more interest.
